This is the pose that Shrike should have. Instead, we've got something along the lines of a flailing ballerina/wrestling move gone wrong. Now I know why people go out of their way to convert their own version. Even the GW artwork has got a better pose than the model.

This is a little better, but nothing like the dynamic action pose we all have in our minds while were reading the background on this guy. We want coolness.
So... it's my job to make this coolness. Naturally, I'll be posting pics of my progress on this little project for you all to follow like everything else. I'm going for a pose like Wolverine at the top.
Something that says "I'm going to cut you to shreds" and not "Please catch me in your arms when I jump."
This is where I'm at right now, I've got a ways to go. My Client has given me the go ahead to make him look like the Wolverine pose at the top. Expect to see more of this guy in the coming weeks.
